Ginny Owens is a three-time Dove Award winner who has sold nearly one million albums. She has been at the top of the Christian radio charts with hits such as, "If You Want Me To," "Free" and "I Wanna Be Moved," among others. Owens has performed at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival and the White House and her music has been heard on the WB series' "Roswell" and "Felicity." She was featured on NBC's "Today" and CNN, for her contribution to help rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Owens began discovering melodies on the piano as a toddler. What I didn't know about Ginny Owens, is that a degenerative eye condition left her completely blind at the age of 3. This did not stop her from pursuing a music career. Her songs became an outlet for her thoughts and dreams and an inspiration for others.
In 2005, Owens began The Fingerprint Initiative, a non-profit organization which has partnered with groups like Compassion International, International Justice Mission, and Habitat for Humanity.
Ginny's newest CD is due to be released on September 13th from her new record label Soul Stride Records, part of the EMI Gospel Distribution System.
I received a copy free to review, and I must say, I am very excited to be helping to promote "Get In, I'm Driving." It is an eclectic mixture of songs, with no two seeming to be in the same style. The music is inspiring and uplifting, and Owens has a beautiful voice that one could listen to for hours on end. I'm hard pressed to name just one favorite track off this CD but Ginny's cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" is at the top of that list. I have graciously been provided with a copy for one of my readers, and I am excited to be hosting a giveaway. Find out below how to enter!
